“I can’t remember the last time I was sick or the last time I had the flu, or the last time I had a cold. I believe that is because I have such a fortress of an immune system that’s been cultivated over the years as a result of this whole-foods plant-based diet, with all this diversity of fiber, and now I have a microbiome that is like this wonderful ecosystem that is just thriving. That’s worth gold to me as an athlete, let alone just as a human that wants to go through each day with a higher quality of existence.”

From The Plant-Based Athlete: A Game-Changing Approach to Peak Performance by Matt Frazier and Robert Cheeke (p. 135)
